I will be honest here – I am so inured to the culture of corruption, and Monty Python’s Black Knight caliber of willful and idiotic denial…I didn’t think anything UNC scandal related could shock me anymore. Then I read this, and you should as well: Prepare to be disgusted. Horrific doesn’t even begin to describe [...]
The full report into Penn State’s response to allegations of sexual abuse by longtime defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky, following an eight-month investigation overseen by former FBI director Louis Freeh, fills 267 excruciating pages. But to put the finishing touches on the obliteration of a half-century of goodwill, it only took 163 words: The evidence shows [...]
Notice how this didn’t happen in Chapel Hill? Almost never does. Why a Carolina football or basketball player would ever venture outside the friendly confines of Orange County befuddles me. Compare that to vigor and deep reach into the living premises of Wolfpack football players by off-duty police in Raleigh. (Link) Link Quan Sturdivant, an [...]

LINK. He was looking at a lot more time than that, and we all wish him the best of luck as he tries to turn his life around.
You cannot make this stuff up. It is nice to know that “Curry Math” continues to be taught at Carolina. Just remember, Chris Washburn was at State almost 25 years ago. Link to video Heck…while we are talking about Carolina athletes who are a little on the small side why don’t we also highlight that [...]
Think this would have EVER happened if he wasn’t going pro? UPDATE: The N&O blog was actually first on this story, and reports slightly different charges.
In a just world, USC basketball would have something in common with SMU football in the near future. The death penalty. It’s not going to happen, because NCAA bylaws don’t work that way.
